Private Funeral Planned for Monkees Star Davy Jones
March 3, 2012

Monkees singer Davy Jones will be laid to rest in Florida at a private funeral. The date and location has yet to be announced for the former teen idol, who died on Wednesday at the age of 66 from a heart attack.
Public services are being planned for New York and England, according to Davy's publicist. The family of Jones is asking that contributions be sent to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society or the local chapter in honor of Jones' niece, Deborah Jane Wilkinson, who died from the illness in 1995.

Monkees contemplate how to memorialize Davy Jones

LOS ANGELES (AP) — The three surviving Monkees aren't planning to attend Davy Jones' funeral because it would likely bring too much unwanted attention to his family during their time of grief, the group's Micky Dolenz said Tuesday.

He and fellow Monkees Peter Tork, and Michael Nesmith have talked of attending one of the memorials that Jones' family is planning to hold in New York and in the late singer's native England, Dolenz said. And he added he's considering organizing a memorial himself for Jones' friends in Los Angeles.

Whether the surviving Monkees would perform at any of the gatherings, or at any other time in the future, is an open question.

"The three of us, Mike and Peter and I, we have never worked together just as a threesome. Mostly it was Peter, David and I and then Mike would join us," Dolenz said of the band's periodic reunions over the years.

"We've been talking, we've been communicating, but it's way too early, I think, to project or predict anything like that."

A private family funeral will take place in Florida this week, Jones spokeswoman Helen Kensick said Tuesday, declining to give any further details. Planning for a family service in England and a public memorial in the U.S. were still under way.

"What you saw is what you got," Dolenz said. "He was very much a song-and-dance man, life of the party, always telling jokes, always on, an entertainer and just a great guy to be around."

Davy-------- RIP my friend, RIP  


Just wanted to add on a personal note that Peter is/was always my favorite Monkee   He made me   and was just too cute. As we, of that generation get older will now see more and more losses. I can remember my Grandmother saying (when she was just a tad older than myself)......all of the people I knew/all of my friends/so many great people are dying off all around me... Sad, but true.
